  • Description

    As Italy reportedly prepared plans for the visit of President Giovanni Gronchi to Moscow, tense times lay ahead Oct 23 in the nation's internal political life with the opening in Florence of the first convention in four years of the ruling Christian Democratic Party.

    The Party - in office for 13 years and with a membership of 1,600,000 - is openly torn between conservatives and pro-Socialist reformers. Face to face in congress will be the leaders of the disunited groups: right-leaning Prime Minister Antonio Segni and left-looking former Prime Minister Amintere Fanfani.

    Upheaval in the ranks of the Party is no new thing since its post-war anti-Communist anti-Fascist foundation. Some political observers interpret the disunity as the herald of one more Government crisis.
